I met a Brent Labour Party member on Saturday who was having to build an extension to house all the communications from candidates for the nomination for Brent Central parliamentary - OK, a bit of an exaggeration, but the contest is predicted to increase recycling rates in the borough significantly.
Several candidates have put up campaign blogs including ex-Brent South MP Dawn Butler. LINK
She is the only candidate to boast testimonials from Barack Obama, Gordon Brown, Rev Jesse Jackson, David Cameron, The Metro and Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs amongst many others. It is going to be hard for Tony McNulty to match that!
Taken as a whole, I believe nobody else matches my combination of: a Brent resident, an experienced MP for the area, my track record of local engagement, community contacts, working with local party members and a tireless campaigner both during and after elections.Amongst the photos on the blog header (see above) is one for the Brent Fightback banner. It will be interesting to see of she shares Fightback's views on fighting Coalition AND local council cuts.
